Why MyWay ?


“The paradigm shift to a personalized learning experience is the process of contouring learning to individuals, recognizing that individuals inherently have different strengths and weaknesses, interests and ways of learning.�

Sir Ken Robinson

I will RESPECT others by: • Not taking or modifying another student’s iPad • Being on task with the class and teacher • Taking only authorized video and pictures of others and activities I will RESPECT property by: • Leaving my iPad in my locker during lunch and recess • Locking up my iPad at all times when not in use for class or learning • Treating the iPad like I purchased it myself I will RESPECT the community by: • Teaching others how to be respectful with the iPad • Encouraging others to make good decisions

Eric Hoffer

Wayzata MyWay - Keeping Kids Safe Online ‣ Keep all Internet access in a public place, including cellphones. Do not charge them in bedrooms. ‣ Make, sign, and display a contract about your expectations when your kids use the Internet. ‣ Talk to kids regularly about where they are going online. Have them show you. Don't be afraid to learn from your kids, and remember that you are the expert in making good decisions. Things posted online leave a digital footprint. ‣ Keep open lines of communication. Remember that kids learn through practice. Taking away computer privileges for long periods of time will lead kids to sneak their Internet access behind your back and not tell you when something is wrong. ‣ Know your child's usernames and passwords. Make it clear that online social networks are not private. You need to know who their friends are and make sure they are building healthy relationships. ‣ Review the rules regularly. Model good responsible use for your kids.
